New Home for Historic Property

On the site of a ruined 1850's farmhouse, the architect honored the client's request for a traditional wood clapboard home. Stately 150 year old Norfolk Pines were preserved and the home was sited to maximize privacy from the main street, while providing a suitable venue for corporate entertaining.

The wood exterior was developed by researching and reinventing American Colonial and Colonial Revival contruction details to meet the demands of contemporary construction. Each exterior detail was designed with more sustantial proportions than the standardized wood materials available in today's contruction market: roof eaves & soffits, door & window trim, corner beads & clapboards were carefully selected along with wood and masonry details to set the structure on a brick-faced foundation wall.
